up the second term, chuck. >> four years ago, enormous expectations for president obama. there were a lot of people, hope and change was big. this time, call it pragmatic hope as far as the public is concerned. as you see here, just less than 30% believe they're going to evaluate president obama with a clean fresh slate. 64% will evaluate him based on past feelings. and here, a continuation of a trend we saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix t
all equally miserable. welcome to the america of obama. 25-year-old children living with parents, elderly begging for groceries because they cannot afford their own retirement. i am not surprised. things have not been going well the last five years. >> let's pull up a survey here. this is a prosperity survey. in is the top ten places to live from number one is norway. then denmark. sweden. australia. new zealand. canada. finland. here is the deal. how do we climb back to the top ten, peter? >>peter: start growing and competing more effectively. all of these places compete effectively. it is not whether they have big or small government. some have big government but what they have that we don't: effective government that delivers services at a reasonable price. the youngs have national health care. they do it for 50 percent less than we do. their taxes are not so high or their taxes go do help them opposed to paying for mindless bureaucracy. >> norway is number one. peter, will you renounce your citizenship or america still the best country to live? >> why would i renounce being a

'll continue to do that for the next four years and i think we are all kind of used to it by now. jon: let me reach a floor beach that senator obama gave in 2006, ellen. he said leadership means that the buck stops here. instead washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. america has a debt and a failure of leadership, americans deserve better, i therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. that was what senator obama had to say. why does it not apply now that he's president? >> well, first of all, you know, i don't understand why it applies or not applies, that's what he address ned his press conference. what i do want to address is the mainstream media. a lot of people think it's a liberal by as and it may be liberal by as, i don't know, i'm a liberal so -- okay. what i do think it may be is media laziness. i have to fault the mainstream media for not putting side-by-side the president's comments with his votes. i think that american people, no matter who is president, whether it's president bush or pres
